There are many injectable cosmetic treatments on the market today, and many who use them are not so concerned with how they work – just as long as they do. However, understanding the science behind a procedure can help you make a better decision regarding which treatment is right for you. We’ll take a closer look at the science behind the Belotero Balance® filler and how it helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
What is Belotero Balance®?
Belotero Balance® is a cosmetic injection that is available at our med spa in San Antonio. It is intended to temporarily smooth out and reduce the appearance of wrinkles in certain areas. It is typically injected in a brief procedure that takes just minutes. Once injected, the results are visible almost immediately, and another injection may not be needed for months after the treatment. Most patients who have the injection praise it because their skin doesn’t feel different in sensation after the injection – instead, it feels natural to the touch.
An Active Ingredient That Restores Balance
It is important that, before you get an injection for a medical purpose, you have an understanding of the changes that it is making to your body. In this case, Belotero Balance® seeks to rectify a natural imbalance that occurs with the aging process. The skin loses its natural balance of naturally-occurring substances including hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin, which leads to hard wrinkles and lines in the skin.
The active ingredient of Belotero Balance® is a hyaluronic acid similar to what is found in younger skin. When injected, it is completely absorbed into the tissue of the skin and begins to work as if it were naturally occurring. Unlike other fillers, which are designed to restore lost skin volume or structure, the Belotero Balance® product treats the wrinkles themselves by giving the skin more elasticity and an ability to spring back from creasing.
